Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and mopeds are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure while being shipped. Though, it turns out that the majority depends on the way we do it and how much prior experience with shipping we have. It is doable to ship a motorcycle or a scooter without troubles, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the method of transportation. Owing to some valuable tricks you can avoid any scratches, and dents that often happen if a moped or motorcycle is not properly secured.

When you are shipping your motorcycle using a trailer you will need four strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorcycle. In this situation you will need only two strapping belts. It's essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one should not open up by accident during the shipment.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or objects that may possibly rip the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also reasonable to transport a motorbike inside a truck. The protection and equipment necessary to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not differ too much from other methods mentioned before. One thing to be considered will be the installation of the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may be transported next to the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a car or van, can let you transport your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the van.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to ship your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could be dangerous to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause severe damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.

 

When putting an offer on Clicktrans you can get  a lot of great quotes from shipping providers who have their account on Clicktrans.

Many of these companies can organise the transport, so that they can utilise the full capacity of their vans. Thanks to that, transport gets cheaper and more eco-friendly with less and less „empty runs”.
